Hospitals and clinics continue to be under siege in 2016. Hackers have discovered that ransomware is highly effective against health care systems.

Name a big bank. Odds are it has been victim of a successful cyber attack.

In just one breach, thieves stole the data of eighty million JPMorgan Chase customers. But hackers don't have to defeat big-time bank security to reach lucrative data.

The Federal Reserve warns that targeting tiny banks can lead to breaches just as large. Getting inside small banks gives bad guys access to financial systems used worldwide.

Cybercriminals have already been caught trying this...

Fewer cyber pros say their organization's security infrastructure is up to date. That's one big takeaway from this year's Annual Security Report by tech giant Cisco.

But there's a silver lining. While concerns rose over keeping up with the tech arms race, industry insiders say their teams are getting more training than before.

ZeuS, one of the most successful Trojans ever created, has been around for nearly a decade. The malware enabled the theft of at least $3 million from U.S. banks alone, according to CNN Money.
